Why you’ll like it:
Brighton had certainly asserted itself as the most fashionable seaside holiday spot by the turn of the century, and Neville House was a well established and luxurious hotel at this time. It remained so until the late 1970s when it was transformed into these apartments, and they still hold an air of grandeur, as well as holding one of the prime locations in the city.
This apartment has its own street entrance, accessed down some stone steps to the side of the building, below the main door. Your door opens to a small lobby area where there is space for coats and shoes, and bedroom two is directly ahead. This is a peaceful room, with a feature wall of Baroque wallpaper in delicate duck egg blue, and an oatmeal carpet. It is set up as a single bedroom, but there is space for a small double and some freestanding pieces of bedroom furniture as required.
The door on the left takes you through to the main body of the flat, and to the generous, open plan living room and kitchen. This is a sociable space, with high ceilings, walnut laminate floors, and lots of wall space to adorn with artwork. The kitchen is visually separate as an arm of it interjects into the room, creating a breakfast bar. The units are plenty, and the slimline dishwasher and under counter fridge have been integrated within them. The walls are on trend with exposed brick which gives an industrial feel, and the utilities have been cleverly hidden in the deep cupboard in the hallway, alongside the new combi boiler. The large metallic black floor tiles flow from the kitchen, through the hall and into the bathroom for continuity, and these are in happy contrast with the sandstone tiles which rise up the walls and around the modern bathroom suite. The Mira electric shower is over the ten jet whirlpool bath, and a tall heated rail warms your fluffy towels.
The master bedroom is conveniently next door, and this is a very generous room with white walls and a charcoal carpeted floor. A door leads from here to the patio which has space for a table and chairs from which to enjoy your morning coffee during the warmer months, and there’s also room for colourful pots and planting to make it cheery. From here a door leads through to the outdoor office space which has a smart decor with a timber clad wall in silver birch effect, and has a desk built in with electric sockets for your computer. This could just as easily be a workshop, a treatment room or a summer guest house depending on your need, but it couldn’t be a permanent third bedroom due to its location and build.
This apartment has character and space, and while you can move straight in with ease, there is still some scope to add value and to put your own stamp on it if you wish.
Bear in Mind:
There is a short waiting list for this parking zone, but there are pay as you go bays nearby, and plenty of excellent transport links nearby should you choose to be car free for a while.
